California Fire Updates (7.15.17)

Approximately 7,000 firefighters are battling 12 large wildfires in California.

In the northern region, the four corners area high will strengthen through Saturday and produce hotter and drier weather in most areas of northern California. Drier southwest flow is expected Sunday as an offshore low pressure trough approaches the coast. Temperatures will level off on Sunday then drop a bit early next week as it moves onshore. The main affect from this trough will be southwest winds gusting to 30-40 mph and very low humidity east of the Cascade-Sierra Crest on Monday and Tuesday.

Later in the week increasing temperatures expected. In the southern region, strong high pressure will sit over the Southwestern States causing temperatures to be 5 to 10 degrees above normal through the end of next week. Minimum humidity will be mainly between 12% and 25% away from the coastal areas through this weekend and then it will increase to 20% to 40% across Southern California early next week. An increase in shower and thunderstorm activity may be starting the middle of next week. There will be nighttime north winds of 10 to 20 mph across Santa Barbara County and the Grapevine through Sunday.  Westerly winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 40 mph will surface across the wind prone desert areas each afternoon and evening through the end of next week.
